All those hills!

I hate running hills. I mean, I HATE it! Downhills are okay, but uphills just make me want to stop! The area that I live has lots of hills, so I get lots of practice running hills on a daily basis.

So why the HECK did I sign up to run a 5 mile race in Valley Forge National Park. It's 5 miles of hills. And not gentle sloping hills. I mean big, serious uphills. I signed up months ago and it sorta seemed like a good idea. Now, it's three days away and it seems like a seriously bad idea!


Oh well- I'm obviously not going to be running this with any hope of a decent time- my goal is just to get through the race!

On the brighter side, I will be running a 5K at Disney World this October. Disney is hosting the first annual Food and Wine 5K, and I (amazingly) convinced hubby to let me run it! There are so many great this about this race- it's at Disney, it includes a ticket to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, and most of all, many of my friends from all over the country will be there, too!

So I guess as I run this Sunday, I should just imagine myself running up Main Street toward Cinderella's Castle- go to my happy place!
